Subject: Radio Drama at It's Finest
Theater Guild on the Air was a top quality radio drama series of famous plays and novels finely adapted for radio and superbly acted and hold up quite well today. Unlike many other "star" radio programs it's clear the cast here worked and rehearsed the script quite a bit for airtime. Adaptations include works by Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward, Tennessee Williams, Edith Wharton, and Jane Austen with such great stars of stage and screen as Alfred Lunt & Lynn Fontanne (making rare radio appearances), Helen Hayes, Maurice Evans, Judith Anderson, Katharine Hepburn, Shirley Booth, Maureen Stapleton, Gene Kelly, Gene Tierney, and Gertrude Lawrence.

Subject: A Class Act
A class act all around. The source is Broadway plays for the most part, which makes it a little more literate than the film adaptations that were so popular. (The material is very much of its era, so don't expect stuff quite as detailed or subtle as, say, a literary adaptation).

This is worth downloading for a preview, then finding a vendor to get you the whole set.
